Are you sighing … oh not another food theme? But look at this beautiful carrot, pulled from the garden by the Three Year Old ….
Did you know carrots were originally purple or yellow or red, before they were tamed, whoops domesticated, and I think it was the Dutch who bred the standard orange carrot most of us eat. Anyway our carrot was matchsticked, and a little carrot stick construction took place, but was soon overshadowed by the important task the TYO discovered for herself.
She decided to shell the sugar snap peas, which of course have an edible pod … but once she had seen the tiny peas inside she patiently pulled the shells apart and gathered the peas together. Then she called out loudly “Dubdee, lie down on the sofa and I will feed you!” And she did! Dubdee (Grandpa) was thrilled, no one had ever suggested he lie and allow himself to be fed before. She knows how to win him over!
